According to head coach Russell Domingo, Bangladesh’s batting squad is lacking in confidence. Here in this article, we talk about Bangladeshi batsmen lacking confidence.
Bangladesh is on the verge of losing the first Test, as the West Indies finished the day in command, needing 35 runs to win.
Bangladesh was bowled out for 103 runs in the first innings, and the game began to slide away from them after that.
The tourists were likewise unable to capitalize in their second innings, falling to 109-6 at one point until Shakib al Hasan and Nurul Hasan put up a 123-run seventh-wicket partnership to gain a narrow lead.
“At the moment, batters are all lacking in confidence.” Some of the major players, such as Mominul and Shanto, have a low level of confidence. Confidence is quite important in cricket, and they now lack it in their batting,” he explained.
Despite the fact that Shakib batted effectively in both innings, Domingo believes he needs to strike a balance between his attack and defense if he wants to score hundreds in Test cricket.
Shakib scored 51 runs in the first innings and 63 runs in the second before being bowled out by Kemar Roach on a bad shot.
Shakib was aggressive in both innings, according to Domingo, in order to put pressure on the bowling unit.
“Look, Shakib is going to play with strong intent all the time, and we don’t want him to slog but rather play nice cricket strokes.” I believe he simply wants to put some pressure on the bowlers, but he knows that if he gets through that point, he’ll be able to bat effectively,” Domingo said.
“He is capable of scoring a century, and he must do so; he is now hitting at number seven, but he will inevitably bat at number six, and top six hitters must get hundreds.” As a result, he must strike a balance between offense and defense.
There is no question that you have to counter-attack at times, but just make sure he retains his shape, maintains his position, and keeps his head steady because he is a terrific batter, as he has shown today,” he added.
Domingo expressed his satisfaction with the bowling unit’s performance but said that despite Khaled Ahmed’s three fast wickets, he still has a long way to go.
